Lemuel Hilton Family

Lemuel G. Hilton married Elizabeth Jane Maddox (1793-abt. 1844) in 1817 in Rowan County NC, and lived in the part of Rowan county that later became Davie. By 1825 Lemuel was deceased, and in 1827 Elizabeth married 2) William Jones, with whom she had additional children. In the 1850 census and some marriage records, this family name appears as Helton. Lemuel is thought to be the son of a John Hilton/Helton of Virginia.

First Generation

Children of Lemuel G. Hilton and Elizabeth Maddox
Rowland Hilton (d. bef. March 1841)

Lemuel G. Hilton (1821-1905) m. 1) Pauline Tucker (?-bef. 1850), 2) Elizabeth Orrell (1825-1904)

Update, September 28, 2010: previously we stated that Elizabeth Haworth was the second wife of Lemuel b. 1821. We now know that this Lemuel and Elizabeth were a different couple, living in Guilford County NC in 1850 and 1860, and subsequently moving to Missouri. Lemuel G. Hilton of Davie County married only Pauline Tucker and then Elizabeth Orrell, and remained in Davie Co. until his death.

*John L. Hilton's birthdate is given on his gravestone as 27 Feb. 1856, but the 1860-1880 census records are more consistent with a birthdate in 1854. In the 1860 and 1870 census records he is 6 and 16, respectively, whereas Thomas is 3 and 13.
